  1. ainol novo 7 advanced Review by bgj84

    great tablet i have my kindle on it and added a 32 gig sd and now i take it every where great for surfing the net watching catch up tv and playing games nice screen i love it (Posted on 16/03/2012)


    What brilliant customer service, I must start by praising Gadgetfreakz, especially Tony who I know I have hounded for the past few weeks about this tablet which was out of stock. As promised when they had one of these tablets in stock I was contacted straight away. Being new to tablets I had a number of questions all of which were answered comprehensively confirming that Gadgetfreakz was the store to buy my tablet. It was delivered free by courier the following day after making payment. Upon receiving the tablet I was more than pleased with it, it is solid, light, great screen images, lots of apps already installed by the guys at Gadgetfreakz, the sound quality is excellent and it does everything it is supposed to do. I had an issue as I didn’t want to set up a Google email account to access the apps market but once again after speaking with Tony he explained that I didn’t have to use Google email and that I could download lots of apps from another website called SLIDEME which I have successfully done.
    On a final note if you have this tablet and go to the following address you will find a 16 page manual for this tablet. (Posted on 13/03/2012)

  3. ainol novo 7 advanced / gadgetfreakz Review by sas40th

    this company is amazing i bought this tablet and something went wrong i emailed xmas day expecting a reply in the new year and he phoned me xmas day and sorted it for me straight away and the tablet is amazing with great firmware downloads here too would recommend any day (Posted on 31/01/2012)

  4. Fantastic !!!!! Review by Karl

    All i can say is Fantastic product, service and company !

    Have recommended 7 friends to also buy this tablet so far and none of them are un happy with it in any way at all.

    Its so good for the money i am amazed, buy one. (Posted on 30/01/2012)

  5. Bob-on Tablet Review by kenabiss

    Bought the Ainol novo 7 for the wife as an ebook reader for xmas. Was looking at buying a Kindle but thought better of if due to the Android platforms versatility. Well all i can say is i'm glad i did. Me and the kids have hammered this little beauty since xmas day, gaming, on the internet and watching movies. I've installed an the Moon ebook reader app for the wife but she hasn't been able to get near it. Flashed it with the latest ROM and works flawlessly. Very compact and sturdy, small enough to take to the bog whilst at work for a little R&R.
    Great liitle bit of kit, well worth the money and also great service from Gadgetfreakz.
    many Thanks
    A Happy Customer (Posted on 09/01/2012)

    Great Job Guys (Posted on 09/01/2012)

  7. Exactly what I was looking for, fantastic device, excellent price, extremely happy.. Review by Ninja of the Mind

    I was initially looking for something that would support the Kindle application but do more that just display books. Having done my research and finding the Kindle Fire was probably not worth waiting for I set my sights on a cost effective alternative and eventually found this.
    I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to my gadgets and like to check reviews and do a lot of reading on products if I'm planning on spending a reasonably amount of cash on it. I found with the Novo 7 Advanced the only negative comments were a matter of personal preference as opposed to actual criticism or product fault.

    I had never heard of GadgetFreakz or Ainol before purchasing the Novo 7 A, but have no hesitation in recommending them both and have since used GF'z to purchase the Official (Book Style) Leather Case.

    I place my order during the busy Christmas period and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived a couple of days later. It was suitably packaged and protected.
    There was charge on the device so I was able to try it out straight away.

    This is my 1st experience of using Android and I am really happy with it so far. It easily does everything I ask of it and has some nice features I've not come across before like the pull down top menu, allowing for quick access to emails and other functionality.
    Set up is straight forward and it has a load of content pre installed already, all you need do is click and load. WIFI, Emails, Market and Kindle were all activated and working within 30 mins as well as getting distracted along the way with additional features and functionality I hadn't expected or tested out.

    One of the essential things for me was access to the Android Market Place, this tablet has full access in case you were in any doubt. The only issue I have come across so far is a few of the applications are not compatible with the device, slightly frustrating but not directly an issue with the tablet and I hope this will be resolved with future Firmware updates.
    The touch screen is extremely responsive and the multi-touch (pinch and zoom) works better than expected. The smaller hard keys on the right hand side of the tablet are a useful addition I find myself using, but not essential.

    So how does it fare in regards to my requirements?
    as a Kindle reader it is just what I was looking for. An account was easily created on the device and I was quickly browsing the store and downloading the free classics available. The screen is sharp and clear, it does not strain your eyes after prolonged use either (not sure how it is outdoors in sunlight, given the time of year). Pages are easily turned by flicking anywhere on the screen. My preference for standard books is the landscape view. I have since loaded a lot more books of varied content (including graphic novels) and am increasingly finding it to be a device I use more each day.
    I have also installed a comic reader and again have been more than happy with the results, sharp, true colours, responsive screen and intuitive interface.
    The web browser is great and I haven't found anything yet that it couldn't handle content wise. I find myself using this over my laptop for convenience.
    The rear facing camera gives more than acceptable quality photos in natural light but the video I was really pleased with. Playback is smooth and picture quality is surprisingly crisp.
    Music player gives the added benefits of music on the go and I was pleasantly pleased to find Bob Marley and the Wailers pre loaded.. bonus.
    The final essential aspect of my purchase was for game play, again I was seriously impressed. I've not tried everything out yet but the game Heavy Gunner alone has kept me entertained for hours. Graphics is sharp with good depth of field and the colours are rich. I have not experienced any lag or delay whatsoever.

    In conclusion:
    If like me, you like to be sure before such a purchase then hopefully this review will help towards making up your mind. For each of the above functions it works perfectly well, but if you appreciate this is a converged device then for the price, you have the perfect 7" tablet.
    I have read reviews that call it an entry level tablet, but given my experience of various other platforms and products I am more than happy with it's all round ability without categorising it or limiting it's appeal.
    I was tempted by an iPad initially but couldn't justify the price. The Novo 7 A is in my mind as comprehensive a product at a fraction of the price. It's all a matter of personal preference I guess.
    With the market flooding with similar products then you're spoilt for choice really right now, but I am pleased I narrowed it down to this tablet and am confident I made the right choice. Money well spend. Enjoy.

  8. awesome value for money & great battery life! Review by Roland

    Got one of the last of these tablets just before christmas. According to the forums these are not made any more. A new "advanced 2" is slated for release on 12-jan-2012.

    Have upgraded this tablet to ICS and it rocks. Amazing battery life (around 7 hours on video with good brightness) and plays 1080p videos no problem. The only downside is the 512mb RAM as you cant have many apps open & it slows right down. Also the screen when laid flat on a table can be hard to see if not directly looking down.

    The long battery give this machine the usability that you need. It is just the best travel companion especially when you add a 32gb micro SD card for tv / films. (Posted on 09/01/2012)

  9. Fantastic value! Review by JCBC

    Fantastic value! I’m new to the Android operating system, and it took me a day or 2 of fiddling around until I got a ‘feel’ for it. Now I carry it everywhere- this does everything that I need.
    Build quality is surprisingly good, the screen is very responsive to the touch, and is easy to see with nice colours even in bright daylight. The software package that Gadgetfreakz supply is top-notch, too…it all works perfectly out of the box. Having said that, if you like customising then I would recommend MX Video Player (for Video), WinAmp (for Audio) and WiFi Analyser. Battery lasts really well- 5 hours+ of constant use easily, and I never turn it off either (it just sits on standby consuming precious little juice).
    As other people have mentioned, the Audio sync with AVI files is about 0.5/sec out (hopefully to be fixed with a firmware update?), but I just convert my avi files to MP4 on my PC (using Videora ipod converter) and problem solved.
    This is not a Ipad wanna-be, but is certainly a more versatile alternative in its own right. Finally, the customer service from Gadgetfreakz is second to none. Thanks again!

  10. Great product!!! Review by ann

    Bought 3 of these after much searching. Great price, great site, prompt delivery. If i can get them off the kids long enough, i will give a more comprehensive review. (Posted on 30/12/2011)

  11. Great Service, Great Product Review by Mike

    It takes very little to generate a bad review, and a lot of generate a good review. I'm not surprised to see so many five star reviews on this product or this company in general given my short experiences with them.

    I initially ordered an Ainol 7 whilst they were out of stock, with the hope of receiving one for Christmas. Gadgetfreakz delivered one via courier. Unfortunately I noticed the tinyest of errors with the tablet - a couple of broken pixels on the screen.

    A quick call to GadgetFreakz and a replacement was arranged for delivery via next day courier to an address two hundred miles away in time for Xmas where I was staying - how's that for customer service? Quite possibly some of the most professional customer service you will receive.

    The tablet itself is amazing for the price. The build quality is much better than you'd expect for the price and the tablet runs almost every available app in the Market with just a few not currently supporting the processor in the tablet. All the main games and apps are there though and you'll see be addicted to Assassins Creed or similar ;-). The feature set including HDMI out goes far beyond similarly priced tablets, and you'll find this will quickly be travelling with you anywhere given the portability of the 7" size.

    GadgetFreakz also send the tablet ready to run, unlike their Chinese competitors on eBay; where you will find you don't have a UK adaptor, no market installed so you can't install apps etc and quite possibly everything setup in Chinese!! (Posted on 29/12/2011)

  12. Not bad. Review by cf

    Everything works great except for following:

    1. The audio lags (up to 1/2 second) behind the video when watching movies in avi format. Works ok for mp4 files. I have not tried other formats.
    2. Same as 1 for tv programmes on iplayer or Youtube.
    3. Charger is a bit flaky. This has been reported in previous reviews.

    If you want to surf the internet and play games, this is a very good tablet.

    If you want to watch movies or tv programmes, i suggest you look at an alternative tablet. (Posted on 23/12/2011)

  13. Outstanding Review by Steve B

    Possibly the best customer service I have EVER recived from Gadget Freakz. The product is first class, how on earth they can sell a machine that possibly outshines the iPad II (Flash, playback of MKV's ect al) is amazing, and the support both during purchase and during setup have been second to none. To think that I was seconds away from purchasing a Kindle and charger for £100, until I did a quick search on the net to look at alternatives sends a shiver down my spine (Just out of interest, the kindle app, along with dozens more are included here). Many thanks again, and I look forward to ordering more products and spreading the word about Gadget Freakz in the new year!! (Posted on 21/12/2011)

  14. The one to Buy ! Review by Cussine

    Couple of problems due to lack of OS knowledge but resolved promptly by " The Team " even on a Sunday evening !

    Go 4 it !!!! (Posted on 12/12/2011)

  15. Awsome machine in such low price Review by Javaid

    Its really great. Much better than galaxy tab. even better then ipad bcoz flash works. very good battery time. (Posted on 12/12/2011)

  16. excellent tablet Review by affectmachine

    I haven't had time to get my iPad out. The Novo 7 is so much fun. My grandson has one as well and we play games together.
    Top tablet. (Posted on 11/12/2011)

  17. Fantastic Tablet, Excellent Customer Service, Super Fast Delivery Review by Jimbob

    I must start by praising Gadgetfreakz for their excellent customer service. I Emailed in a question & got a reply within 10 mins. Rang in another time with a query ref a case - was told they would check it out and ring back in 5 min, & within 5 min my phone was ringing. Ordered at 1pm on Monday, received tablet before 12 on Tuesday and that was to Northern Ireland.

    Now onto the tablet : Good solid build, comes loaded with a good few apps, the screen is smooth and fast. The battery life is good. For this price for a 8gig 5 point capacitve screen you cant go wrong. Got it hooked up to the internet in no time.
    Hooked it up to my mates massive flat screen tv and it worked brilliant.
    The clips on the 7 inch usb keyboard case are slightly too far apart for this tablet (as the gadgetfreakz team had told me already but i went ahead and got it anyway) but its easily solved with 2 pieces of stick on velcro in the top corners.

    Got the first tablet for my wife, shes loves it. Have since ordered 3 more that were delivered next day.


  18. Nice tablet, shame about the lack of a manual Review by Sundancer

    Delivery excellent.

    The manufacturers seem to have spent a lot of budget on the packaging and none on documentation - there's no manual!

    The UK mains adapter for the power supply seems a bit flaky. Apart from the very brief appearance of a battery image there's no indication whatsoever as to whether it's charging or not.

  19. brilliant Review by hawkeye23353

    The tablet is a nice size and easy to use but would have been nice to have a manual, still I can`t complain. Gadget Freakz said they are waiting for a new shipment on tablets arriving 5/12/11 I received my tablet 6/12/11. Now that is fast delivery. I used the tablet at my grand daughters nativity play and videoed the show and it was great 5 stars and this was 1 hour after receiving it. This review is 3 hours after receiving the tablet. For me the Ainol 7 is better than the I Pad and much cheaper too. With front and back cameras on a tablet this cheap with great clarity and a video camera thrown into the package with a choice of using either front or back camera AND play films and music and games( of which there are 10 games with mine. ) What more do you need. Forget 5 stars....9 stars. (Posted on 06/12/2011)

  20. Amazing Value Tablet- Does Everything I Need ! Review by Dean C

    In short, the Novo 7 is a fantastic little machine.

    I wasn't sure exactly what to expect as I have never owned a tablet before but I am extremely happy with my purchase.

    Its fast, lightweight and does everything I need: emails, games, surfing the web and full android market- all for under £130!

    Brilliant customer service - I ordered the Novo 7 last Thursday afternoon and received it at 9am the next day. Being new to android devices I was unsure of how to work a few things, one call to GadgetFreakz and all sorted!

  21. Fantastic Tablet, great setup, good value Review by Martin F

    Having decided to buy a tablet as I have a few long journeys ahead and wanted to watch my own choice of movies, etc, but not pay £400 for an Ipad or similar, found this website by chance when reviewing prices for the M7/C8/Herotab which are all very similar in spec, if not the same tablets! Not the Nova 7 advanced however, fantastic video playback, charging thru usb port, up to 100g lighter than the competition and more. Ordered it Friday and received it Saturday morning, which was unexpected as I thought it would come next working day. Fired it up to find it had all the apps you could want already loaded along with 1.7 firmware giving access to the market should you need more. Only 2 issues, 1. if you are a new to android the manual is in Chinese, but plenty of support in the forums online, 2. Can't get it off my kids!

    In summary

    Great Tablet - good build quality, 7 hrs battery life out of the box
    Great setup out of the box
    Buy one - or two if you have kids!
    Thanks Gadgetfreakz - excellent service and downloads easily accessible on your website should they be required (Posted on 19/11/2011)

  22. Wow! Review by Neil

    First a word about gadgetfreakz - used the site to post a question about Novo 7 and got an instant response, follow-up question, instant response. Ordered at 2:16pm, delivered the next day to Edinburgh before noon. You really can't ask much more than that. Really well done guys, brilliant service.

    Can't say too much about the tablet but first impressions are really good. It is heavier than you imagine and the build quality looks good. Doesn't feel like it will fall apart. Not so sure about the adaptor for the charger but it seems to work!

    Screen looks great and touch screen works brilliantly. Had a quick wander through the pre-installed apps and they appear to work brilliantly.

    With this service and Novo 7 price what are you waiting for? Order now! (Posted on 19/11/2011)
